Andy Halliday outlines Rangers' lofty points target

Rangers Gates

The Gers midfielder says the club have set their sights on matching the second-tier record of 91 set by Hearts last season.

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has insisted that the club do still have something to play for in the remaining weeks of the Scottish Championship season, telling the club's official website that they want to match Heart's record of 91 points.

The Gers won promotion and the Scottish Championship title with a 1-0 win over Dumbarton on 5 April, before switching their attention to a key cup double-header.

The Glasgow side beat Peterhead 4-0 on Sunday to win the Petrofac Challeng Cup, and they now face a hugely-anticipated Old Firm clash with arch-rivals Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final this coming Sunday.

However, as much as he is looking forward to the Hampden Park occasion, Halliday insists that his side still have an ambition for the remainder of the league season as they look to equal the second-tier record set by Hearts last season.

The former Bradford City man told the club's website: "It’s been an enjoyable week and a couple of massive occasions for us.

"In the last couple of weeks we have managed to win the Championship, securing promotion with a few games in hand and won the Petrofac Cup for the first time.

"We don’t want to limp over the line, we want to keep going and get to 91 points in the league and that’s what we can achieve."

Rangers are currently on 79 points with four matches remaining, meaning that they would need to win all of those fixtures to reach 91 points and match Hearts' feat.

It is a target well within their reach, as long as they do not take their foot off the gas, with the club having failed to win only seven of their 32 league games so far this season.

However, they have suffered what can be defined, for them, as something of a mini-slump in recent weeks, winning just two of their last four league matches and conceding nine goals in that time.
